Episode 81: Google Glass can be so much more than just notifications and photos

We discuss the implications of an open API for Google Glass and all of the cool apps and research underway for it.

As a device that does email, Twitter, photos, video, GPS, it’s OK, but nothing to get too excited about. But Google Glass could be so much more than that.

We also discuss data security in the second half of our podcast.

Should journalists know how to encrypt documents and used secure communication channels?
